Pop diva Kylie Minogue will hold her homecoming Australian tour at the end of next year, after canceling the event earlier this year when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, her promoter said Sunday.

The London-based, 37-year-old singer had returned to her hometown of Melbourne in southern Australia to perform her "Showgirl: The Greatest Hits" tour in May when she was diagnosed.

Minogue underwent surgery in a Melbourne hospital to remove the cancer, and doctors declared the operation a success.

On Sunday, her Australian tour promoter, The Frontier Touring Company, announced the tour would begin at the end of 2006.

"We appreciate that the end of next year is a long time away for ticket holders and the option of refunding tickets will remain available to fans," Gudinski said.
